  9. 9
    Tap on the circular icon to the right of "Pop-ups" to enable or disable the option
    .
    It will indicate blue when it is enabled, and grey when it is disabled. It is recommended to block pop-ups because they are often advertisements and they can be malicious or carry viruses. They can also be irritating. If we find that we are using a website that has positive pop-ups, or we're getting frustrated that pop-ups aren't getting revealed to us and we're not seeing them, we can turn this option on.
